Show MoreIf I had to choose my favorite season it would be a very difficult choice. All four seasons are unique in their own special way, such as the climate, scenery, and activities. Although I enjoy the warmer months of summer, I also enjoy the cooler months of winter. In a sense, I have narrowed my favorite seasons down to two; summer and winter.
The biggest difference between summer and winter is the climate. One of the main attractions of summer is the warm weather. I like being outside on a bright sunny day, and letting the sun warm my body. I also like that we get an occasional thunder storm. The excitement fills the air when I see the thunder clouds rolling in. The sound of thunder, and the lighting shows that come from the…show more content…
Not only is the climate diverse between these two seasons, but also the landscape colors are unlike each other. When I think of summer, I think of color, color, everywhere. I think of the soft blue skies, and a gentle breeze whispering through the green trees. The flowers are in full bloom, and bursting with every color imaginable. The sun is striking with its bright yellow color, which seems to go on forever. However winter may not have as many colors, it is equally as beautiful. With winter comes these huge crystal white snowflakes, and calming gray skies. Also numerous trees keep their eye catching green color. In addition the holly bush also stays dark green, and is covered with bright red berries.
Also both seasons are full of fun, and entertaining activities. Soon as summer arrives, I like taking a trip to the beach. The first thing that I like to do when I arrive at the beach is to get my feet wet. Then I grab my snorkels and swim out to the rocks, where I like to look for colorful fish. I also enjoy searching for seashells, and fishing from the piers. Summer is also a good time to have a barbeque and eat watermelon. Of course, it wouldn’t be summer without the Fourth of July celebration. I always walk down the street from my house to watch the parade. Later in the evening, I’ll find somewhere to watch fireworks. Like summer; winter can also be a lot of fun.
Autumn is drawing to a close. I love seeing the leaves change colour and hearing fallen leaves crunch under my feet. That said, my favourite season - by far - is winter. You're probably thinking I'm slightly mad - after all, who doesn't love summer? Winter, in its own way, is wonderful. For anyone who still needs to be convinced, let me explain why.
During November, Christmas markets appear in countless towns and cities across the UK. London's Hyde Park becomes a huge winter wonderland. There are endless stalls selling traditional food and gifts. Christmas markets have something for everyone. Children can meet Father Christmas; adults can enjoy a glass of mulled wine. Often, temporary ice skating rinks are installed and this definitely provides some entertainment!
The weather gets noticeably colder: the mornings are often frosty and the nights close to freezing. I like the cold weather - for me, there's something nice about wearing a thick winter coat with a scarf and gloves. You can also wear festive jumpers. You can buy jumpers featuring designs of penguins, snowmen and Christmas trees, to name a few. Last year I bought one with a polar bear on and I can't wait to wear it again this year!
Along with countless school children across the UK, I get very excited about the thought of snow. In the Scottish Highlands, snow is quite common. Where I come from, in the North West of England, snow is a fairly rare occurrence. In the UK, because a heavy snowfall is rare, we are usually not prepared. A few years ago there was a lot of snow and many schools had the day off. Snowball fights are great fun and many families enjoy building snowmen together. Two years ago my sister and I made an igloo! I love a white Christmas; unfortunately this doesn't happen often in the UK.
Christmas time also brings other seasonal specialities: advent calendars, carol concerts and Christmas dinner. Throughout December, many churches and schools hold carol concerts: lots of traditional songs are sung, such as "Away in a Manger" and "Silent Night". Christmas dinner is my favourite meal of the year. In my house, Christmas dinner includes turkey, pigs in blankets (these are sausages wrapped in bacon), roast potatoes and lots of vegetables. This is usually followed by Christmas cake and mince pies - and lots of chocolate!
